◆◇◆ STORY ◆◇◆

This event occurs before the girl by the name of King Arthur passes away.

before she makes a contract with the world and before the 4th holy grail war…
--the continuation of a dream.

As the girl lay in a coma, she had a flashback of her life--

The days of King Arthur and the knights of the round, those glorious days of her past.

“What is your wish?”

An unknown voice drew her back to relive history.
Upon revisiting her past, can she find the answer that she seeks?

This time, I can change my fate.
 - from official website

Definitely one of the best fan made novel out there. The marvelous art style, music, sound effect and gameplay make it hard to believe that this game is 100% free. I was stunned when I was at the start screen, shocked by the art and music. The story is good, definitely worth playing (not to mention that there's hot guys in the game (≧o≦) ). This game is available in both chinese and english. The website is really well made too. Give this game a try and you will fall in love with it (^o^)/

Hometown Story

Hometown Story

This game is similar to Recettear and Harvest Moon. 
Since its published Natsume, which is the company that published Harvest Moon and Rune Factory series.
From the trailer, this game is about the main character taking over a shop and running it. Which is similar to Recettear, minus the haggling. You can set your price and sell your goods.
Also, like Harvest Moon and Rune Factory, there's friendship system where you can make friends with the villagers etc. Also, you get to go around finding stuffs to sell! 

If you are a fan of Harvest Moon series, Recettear, Animal Crossing or any games with similar genre, you should buy this game and give it a try

Watch the trailer below:

Recettear - An Item Shop's Tale

Recettear - An Item Shop's Tale

Game Quickkkk Summary: 
One day, Tear (the grey haired fairy) just pop up at Recette's house, demand her to pay back the loan that her dad owed.
Recette has no money, so she have to work to pay back. So her house became a item store.
THE END.(=´∇`= )

Ok, so finally I had the chance to try out the game.
 The game environment is adorable. Sprites are really cute. 
I love the fact that they let you "run" the shop. Its really cool.
But its rather weird that there's no fixed price for the items.

 HOWEVERRRRRRRR, cutish and all, the game is seriously, hard and irritating to play.
Let me tell you why.
When you die in dungeon, you are only allow to bring ONE and only ONE item out.
Meaning, out of the 20 items you have there, you got to pick ONE.
Which irritates me a lot since usually I would restart and do the dungeon again and again

If you didn't manage to pay for any one of the loan, its a automatic GAME OVER.
You will have to start all over from Day 1 again. Apparently, Recette will wake up and find that its a dream.
However, fortunately, everything will stay the same as when you GAME OVER.
Except, your money, day and any preorders.

Well, actually its just this 2 main points. I did some research and found out that the totally amount you will pay, adding everything together would be over 800k. Which....lets see...... I have to sell like 800 armors?


See those jewels? Those are the experience. 
However, there's lots of different coloured jewels and I have no idea how much each give.

This is your typical start of the map, though the location varies as the map's inconsistent.
Kinda the map changes in the Persona series games?
So~the bottom left is the HP,MP and experience bar of the adventurer you are controlling.
The experience bar is the circle around the adventurer's face.

Sorry for the blur picture. > <
Ok, for every 5 level of the dungeon, you will get a mini boss fight.
The boss aren't tough, they just require some technique.

So after defeating the boss, the red door and portal would appear.
The red door would lead you back home.
While the portal would lead you to the next level.

Tip 1:I won't say I'm a pro at haggling in the game. 
But here are some tips or things that I follow during haggling.
For everyone, I set my price between 110% to 120%.
Do note that there are some customers that refuse to pay within that amount due of "insufficient" fund. But I believe it have something to do with "customer loyalty"

Tip 2:
Make use of the increase in prices. When there is a increase in price, display all your items.
Items with a increase in price are in red. Items with a decrease in price are in blue

After paying all the debts:

You will pay your final debt of 500 000 pix at Day 36.
Therefore, there is no rush in meeting more npcs. 
Just concentrate on paying all the debts.
You will unlock the following modes upon paying the last debt of 500 000 pix:

Endless mode : Saving game after paying the 500 000 pix
New game + : Bring over your items, merchant lvl and etc. However, your pix will drop to 1 000 pix instead.
Survival mode: Where you have to keep paying debts till you can't pay anymore

Attack on Old Man

Attack on Woman
Once in a while, there will be news alert that says certain group of people are interested in certain stuffs. And this happens:

Ragnarok Online Prequel


Did I catch any of your attention?
As the title state, there is a chinese version of Ragnarok Online Prequel.
The beta starts 26 June.

Sorry, I can't seems to link the video to blogger, so~
Here's a video of the preview:

There's 6 basic jobs, mainly - 






They also include the usual job change. I believe RO players are very familiar with. 
Swordsman  ==>  Crusader / Knight
Acolyte  ==> Priest / Monk
Archer ==> Hunter / Dancer / Bard
Magician ==> Wizard / Sage
Thief  ==> Assassin / Rogue
Merchant ==> Blacksmith / Alchemist

Currently, there's no reborn classes. But they might or might not implement it since its still new.
 But I'm sure there's lots of old RO player that love the class system before reborn was implemented. 

These features remains the same:
>> PvE , GvG, MVP<<
>> Monsters<<
>> Headgears system<<
>> Riding system<<

The Royal Trap

Madeleine Valois is a prince's companion. Her job is to guide and advise him, to make him look good so that he can land a royal bride. It is her responsibility to keep him out of trouble - not to let him walk blindly into a political minefield, not to let him get arrested for a crime he didn't commit, and definitely not to let him fall in love with her.

Unfortunately, events are not going according to plan... 

Our newest release, featuring a proactive protagonist, a lot of scheming and backstabbing, PLOT TWISTS, swords, guns, and possibly some romance along the way.

Free demo available at the game webpage here:

The demo covers the prologue and chapter 1. A full runthrough is 7 chapters long. Chapters 1-4 are common, chapters 5-7 are different for each route.

Days of the Divine

Days of the Divine Review

This game is one of the games released for NaNoRenO 2013. A pretty good game, great art, great design and suitable music. However its rather sad that there isn't any CGs in the game which is a pity because the art is really good. Just look at the tiger in the picture above. Marvelous drawing. 

However, I think that the words are too small and it takes too much effort to read the text. Maybe there is a way to change it or something, but I haven't really played around with the game to find it. I think that the stories' pretty ok, its not one that would grasp you into it. This is mainly due to the lack of CGs I believe. There isn't really any intimidate or sweet scene with Seirei and Liufan till the end. Not so much for Liufan though. Whereas I think Maru's super cute that it actually is fun to play in he's route since he's bubbly and all~

For me, I played Maru's route > Seirei's route > Liufan's route. The ranking for my favourite would be the same as the sequence of the route that i played. With Maru's cuteness being first, Seirei's coolness being second and Liufan's "not-so-fun" route the last.


The walkthrough is in the link itself

Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure Review

Rhapsody : A Musical Adventure

Yes yes yes. I know this isn't a otome game. But its rather obvious this game is meant for girls. Instead of the prince saving the princess, we get to save the prince instead. It has a cute art form, since it mainly target girls, AND the gameplay is fairly easy. In a sense, you can one hit K.O the monster. But the version I played was the PSX version. The original one. However, there is a remake, which is available on ds. Its a fairly old game. But a enjoyable one, and the graphic isn't bad for a PSX game.

PSX VS DS version:
(source: gamefaq)

(click to enlarge)

I haven't tried the DS version yet, but the storyline is the same, so its rather pointless. I have to say HOORAY to removing the english voices. I'm not saying its horrible, but I'm used to listening to japanese voice acting. So.........the english version sounds really awkward to me XD That's just to me personally, not everyone have the same preference. 

Everything else aside, I feel that the storyline is pretty good, especially the relationship between Cornet, the mc, and Kukuru, a fairy puppet. There is a twist but a fairly obvious one. However, there's flaws to the game, not talking about the easy battles. I think that without referring to the guide, its gonna take really long to find your way to the main storyline. There's not obvious clue or hints to tell you where you have to go or what you need to do. 

I think that if you are craving for some cute rpg to play, you can play this~~

Li'l Red

Li'l Red

This visual novel is based loosely on the childhood story, Little Red Riding Hood. It's a really interesting perspective of the story, where no grandma is involved in the story, but a "evil" mother. It kind of reminds me of Hansel & Gretel. I love twisted childhood stories. So this definitely attracted me. I love the twist to it. And it actually teaches another moral which I think is better than the original story. But I don't really know if there's a moral to that original story......hmmm

So, anyway, download the game, try it. Worth the time, the graphic's really decent, and its like reading a story throughout. Keep in mind, no matter what option you choose, the story will still flow the same way.

NanoRen 2013

Because of NaNoRen2013, there's lots of otome games out now @@ So I'm gonna take my time to finish the games out there. So look forward to more reviews coming up~ I'm sorry if they are really short > <

No One Has to Die

No One has to Die

A interesting game, kinda a mindblown game. It's really confusing. But the game is worth playing because of the unique game play. In this game, you will have to get all the endings and finally get the last real ending. It doesn't take long to play and doesn't require any download. Despite the graphic being simple, the game is very well thought through, there isn't any plot hole that I can think of. But the game made me kill so many people....T ^ T

The Doll's Stories

The Doll's Stories

This game really surprise me. It gave me a unique gameplay and the story is touching T ^ T.
Unfortunately, the female doll's route is incomplete. But the male doll's route is just so good~~
The artwork is really good, it is comparable to pay to play otome games. The game is unique in which, instead of choosing, you have to type instead. The concept reminds me of Fate/Stay Night. Having dolls as your partner in fighting and all. And what can I say, the male doll is just so handsome <3 The story is very well done, it is very well thought. Its a pity that the game play is pretty short. But the whole game is very enjoyable, extremely worth the time.

The doll concept of the game is extra ordinary. Making it different from many other otome games. The background is drawn really well which makes it really noticeable throughout the gameplay. It can be seen that lots of effort has been put into the game. Definitely worth the try!! You can imagine yourself as a girl or a guy. But as otome lover, I'm definitely imaging myself as a girl in the male doll's route ;)

Get Dumped ☆

Get Dumped ☆

I pretty impressed with the story, I didn't manage to predict the story XD
Initially, I thought that the girl with black hair was the 3rd party in the heroine's relationship, but its not the case~ And yes, like the title of the game, you gonna be dumped by the guy in the game.
I think this game is decent~ its worth the try~ Apparently, you get dumped by the "perfect guy" in the game. I think that the ending is satisfying, its worth the time~

The true end starts with the rest of the ends being a dream. And I hated Arashi before the true end, he was such a (*@)#$# in the other ends XD I kinda wish that the heroine was more brave and all.
 But I kinda think the heroine is a stalker because, if she appeared to be a stalker in one of the endings.......and its a in order to dream about it......SHE HAVE TO BE A STALKER!! Which means.........we are all stalkers (¬_¬)  cause we played as the heroine.

Enjoy the game~ヘ(^_^ヘ)   (ノ^_^)ノ

Ragnarok Online 2

Hi guys~ Its been a long time since I've updated the blog > <
Was busy with projects from school T ^ T
Alright, so the latest game I have tried which is a online game is the long waited

Being a big fan of Ragnarok Online, I was looking forward to this game.
I've joined in the close beta and played a little during the open beta.
And~~~ Ragnarok Online 2 sure is disappointing.
Other than the classes that are the same as RO1, the rest of it is different.
Such include the card system, dungeon theme, kafra flying service..........
It makes the game no difference from the other typical online game.
There's basically nothing similar other than the class and monsters.
The leveling is really slow unlike in RO1, there isn't any novice job to start as......
I think RO2: Gate of the World would have been much better than RO2:Legend of Second.
RO2 is just too disappointing and gets boring easily. Its all quest based leveling.
There's no more self leveling in payon dungeon or poring island.....
